On Sunday, February 17, U.S. Congresswoman Susie Lee (NV-3) went to the Leatherneck Club to hold a Veterans Roundtable discussion with local veterans about their thoughts on the current legislative issues for the state of Nevada. She is interested in helping veterans with their VA issues, and also she is interested in supporting HR 553, to eliminate the SBP-DIC offset which only affects military surviving spouses. Passage of this bill will benefit military surviving spouses not only in the state of Nevada, but also nationwide. Information was provided to Congresswoman Lee about the SBP-DIC offset, asking for her co-sponsorship of HR 553 in the 116th U.S. Congress.
